will trade anything for this

will trade anything for this

Well well. This was my first Dead concert. I remember most vividly how loud, yet clear, Phil's bass sounded during Dark Star. It was the loudest thing I'd ever heard, but crystal clear! I also remember some kid who incessantly yelled for "Johnny B. Goode." Also, the stage announcer warned that taping was not allowed, and that if caught, tapers' cords would be cut and the tapes confiscated.

Happy Trails

What a show! Tiny little theater. Everyone was dancing in the aisles and standing on the seats.

Tomorrow Is Forever-1st of 9 times played

E: Saturday Night-Bobby could never repeat the wails from the night prior, but gave it a go nonetheless.

China>Rider>Sugar Magnolia-Only time this ended a show, searched all 223 shows these three were played within.

Played together 7 times, 3 in Nov70 11/7, 11/11 and 11/20) then 12/31/70, 5/30/71, 12/31/79 and last 4/30/88.

I had a great time listening to all of them. Thank you

This is a damn good show. Very solid.

Along with 10/29/77, the best show i ever saw. A small (1,000 seat) hall. Made it to the rail, heard Phil call out "China Cat" during the Jam out of Dark Star. After RIder, a standing ovation and 1,000 shouted requests for St. Stephen, met by chuckles from the band.

After the band stopped laughing at the mass shout-out for St. Stephen they did a Sugar Mag for the ages. Jerry and Phil looked at each other and just shrugged because it seemed Bobby and Donna were going to sing Sunshine Daydream all night!

Many years later I discovered in DeadBase that this was the only Dark Star/China Cat played after 1968 (or '69?) but at the time all I knew was it was a spectacular conclusion to a spectacular jam, one of the longest and finest Dark Stars ever!

Will be officially released on 30 Trips Around The Sun Box (SEPT 2015)
-M C (06/10/2015)

A very peppy FOTD - nice.

The jam into China Cat is sweet.
